WHEN AND WHERE IS THE WORLD’S BIGGEST PRIMARK OPENING?
- The store is set to open on April 11
- The gigantic store will be located in Birmingham city centre
- It will be known as the Primark Birmingham High Street
- The store will create more than 500 new jobs, with 430 colleagues moving from other shops
The gigantic store, which will be located in Birmingham city centre, is a jaw-dropping 160,000 sq ft and will even offer a personal shopping service and free WiFi.
There will also be a salon where shoppers can have their make-up and nails done, their eyelashes extended and their eyebrows plucked.
Primark has released CGI images of the store front, which features huge black-framed windows emblazoned with the brand’s trademark turquoise logo.
The store appears to have a concrete canopy – with glass windows above the entrance which seem to light up at night.
It will take over from Manchester as the UK’s biggest Primark, which has a 155,000 sq ft store in Market Street.
It’s taken two-and-a-half years to create the epic store, with the site’s Pavilions shopping centre closing on May 20 2016.
A spokesman told Sun Online: “The new Primark in Birmingham will be the largest in the world, with five floors of our amazing fashion at amazing prices.”
The store is set to open on April 11.
We recently told you Primark is selling a limited-edition Game of Thrones clothing range priced from just £7.
We also revealed Matalan’s new hen party range features ‘wifey’ nightwear and ‘bride tribe’ swimsuits priced from £6.
